    A boy because I'd have more in common with them, and I can't be dealing with hormonal teenage girls ..

    No offence

    A boy. I don't know why, I've just always seen myself having a son one day. Possibly more children, but always at least one son. I think the bond I have with my father is something really special and something unique to father-son relationships, I'd like that bond with my own child.

    Girl. Not sure why but boy seems boring and ordinary.

    The wet bed conversation is a lot easier than the bloody mattress conversation

    Boy- I can understand them a lot easier. As long as they've got a bed, food and a decent internet connection they'll be happy enough

    A boy, I need someone to pass on my name to. The men of my family seem to have four different names which just get recycled and alternate from First and Middle Names.

    I think it's 'cause I'm already a boy and know what it's like to grow up as a boy. Having a girl seems like it would be more interesting and new to me. Though I am aware having a child is the same as being a child lol. Was just my initial feeling anyway.

    Boy, he can carry on my bloodline.

    It honestly wouldn't matter to me what gender my future child turned out to be, I'd still love him/her all the same.

    Boys are generally easier to deal with.
